Evaluate and return student work within a week of receiving When a teacher respects everyone's opinions (without letting the students misuse it to disrespect her) more students become willing to participate. As the teacher opens her mind up to the comments and perspectives of the class the students can actually teach her a new way of looking at the problem or at least let her know where the common misconceptions lie. Students (especially those weak in math) tend to balk at independent work. Independent work should be sparingly used so that students do not burn out on it and therefore are more responsive to the below actions to continue trying. Encouragement to continue trying tends to keep students motivated longer than the other two.
